Tearjerker / Rasputina

  • The song "Snow Hen of Austerlitz" is just heartbreaking.
    • To clarify, it's about a little girl who thinks she's a bird because her blind, old mother has forgotten that she's human, and has been treating her as one.
    She must be ten or eleven now,
    And she's pretty
    But she don't have all her wits
    She is the Snow Hen of Austerlitz
  • The song "A Quitter" also counts, being one long musical suicide note.
  • "Herb Girls Of Birkenau", a song describing child victims of Nazi atrocities.
    It's not fair,
    and it seems impossible,
    that it happened at all,
    that there were people who saw the herb girls...
